is a matter of social justice. but if we can't have environments where students feel comfortable attending school, being comfortable with themselves and in themselves in a school environment we will never have students that are predicated in a way to be able to learn. we have to have safe schools. so what we did this year, when all of our administrators came back from summer break, every administrator from principals to the purchasing manager, everyone saw bully this year. and we spent a full year with our bifl department of student, family and community resources, we spent a full day debriefing that movie and going through a process where we talked about it and it was amazing to see grown adults having these realizations about what bullying meant to them and having a commitment from every administrator in our district that we will not allow that to happen this year and that will be one of the focus areas this year. so the ability to have these children now watch the movie as well was extremely moving to us yesterday. i just have to share one anecdote from that movie. we had a question

other than the environment, it is counterproductive to supporting the environment. so, for me if i were -- i mean, if that was my position, i would be very supportive of c-e-q-a form that really allowed people to focus on the environmental aspects and then you can debate an appeal project and what you don't like about those projects moving forward. but i think that what's too often the case is that the confusion between c-e-q-a and dislike of a project, and people use c-e-q-a -- if you were to actually look at the number of appeals that actually do happen and whether or not they are upheld by a court or, you know, or by the board of supervisors, there aren't that many. it tells me that the environmental review process along the way is working even if members of the community don't necessarily agree with how it works. >> commissioner antonini. >> well, thank you. my experience is somewhat similar to that of commissioner borden. i first came on the commission in november of 2002, and i was informed on january 1st of 2003 that state legislation had passed making all environmental decisions
into a chaotic environment, people rebel against those and i think that is part of what we're seeing in terms of this opposition. people are very concerned that this change and the variety of changes described in this legislation will cause unintended consequence he. and, so, i think it's important that supervisor wiener and his staff and the planning department has taken the time to really establish a process so that people can, in fact, have an opportunity to participate in that process. i think one of my favorite pieces about this legislation is the increased notification that is required. i think that that -- it also infuses an element of accountability. part of this process is that you want people to exercise their right to comment and participate in their communities and have an input -- have an impact on the outcome of these projects. and we also have to have accountability to the process and make sur that we all can participate in it so that it doesn't have an undue negative impact on the people that we care about. spur organized the c-e-q-a tour, bus tour to several projects around s
